As he approaches his 60th birthday, the certainties of Max Paul's life begin to dissolve. He hasn't produced any work of note for decades. His wife no longer loves him. His grown-up daughters - one in London, one in Helsinki - have problems of their own. So when a former student turned journalist shows up and offers him a seductive lifeline, Max starts down a dangerous path from which he may never find a way back.

"Shot through with understated black humour and nicely balanced between tender and acerbic, this impressive novel is a forceful reminder that there is much more to Scandinavian writing than crime fiction." (Sunday Times)
loved the story line,, the narrators sleepy almost nonchalant approach suited the laziness the writer/husband character adopted towards his family. struggled with the amountof swearing but unusually for.me i managed to get passed it..
